A sinkhole along Interstate 75 has closed some of the highway's southbound lanes in Alachua County, deputies say.

According to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, the hole is on the shoulder of the highway's southbound lanes, north of the exit for Williston Road. That's just south of the University of Florida campus.

In an aerial photo shared by ACSO, the hole appears to be about 6 feet wide.

Deputies say traffic is being diverted. The Florida Highway Patrol is also on scene to assist.
